Featured Artist: Kara Kathleen

Today I am doing my first "featured artist" post. I am doing it on an artist on Etsy named Kara Kathleen . She is actually my husbands cousin and we received a beautiful wedding gift from her. It was a watercolor painting of our cats! It is such a beautiful piece and she did a wonderful job portraying them. The detail she puts into her art is amazing! Here it is here in a frame we bought:

It is slightly hard to see the beauty close up, so please visit her website for more detail in her work.

Kara is a very crafty lady. She has two other shops on Etsy. In one of them she is also known as The Cake Artist. There you will find adorable fondant cake toppers and some baked goods.

The other shop is called Sweet Little Birdie where you can find handmade children's clothing and cute little "pocket buddies". Shown below is a Night Before Christmas Lounge Set and you choose the pocket buddy you want.

I highly recommend checking out her work. She's an amazing creator. Keep up the good work Kara!!

Another day, Another dollar

I started the master cleanse yesterday. Well, today actually is the day I started to drink the lemonade concoction. It's not so bad, so far. Last night was HARD! I was so hungry!! But I fought it, and drank my Senna tea. I'll keep ya posted on how I am doing.

I am in the process of making some awesome Christmas Tree Ornaments out of clay and found glass! They are going to be fantastic! I am so excited about them. Too bad my kiln is still down and I have to wait until about the 23rd to fire them. Thats ok though, plenty of time to purchase for your tree!

Other than that, things are going great in Lean Dog land!!

Lots of new stuff!

So, I finally raided my studio and gathered up tons of new stuff to put in my Etsy Shoppe! Necklaces, rings, mugs, bowls, and coasters! All will be going up for the next couple of days! It takes so much time to put up each item! 
Here are a couple sneak peeks:

I also started a small section called "only ten dollars" because it has items that cost only $10.00!! Great for stocking stuffers! 

I am also about to celebrate my 2nd year Etsy-versary on November 6th! WOO HOO! So I am having a sale in my shop: buy any item and get the second half off! Also all jewelry items will be shipped FREE!
